The Honu, or Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, symbolizes good luck, endurance and long life in Hawaiian culture. Hawaiian legends state that these turtles were the guides for the first voyagers to Hawai’i. And many other Pacific islands including New Zealand (Aotearoa). The Hokule’a is a symbol of the ancient Polynesian people and their outstanding journey to the Pacific islands. The combination of these two familiar cultural icons has been used to create a new species that tells the story of the early Hawaiian voyagers in an unexpected way that sits somewhere between the tradition of science and storytelling.
